Rainbow light opal, 1.40ct

 

Estimated Value $100-$125
  • 1.40ct 11.8x6.83x2.75mm from Mintabie, Australia.
  • Brightness: 1.5 of 5, directional;
  • Body tone: N8, Light opal/crystal opal.

This opal has the most evasive and beautiful rainbow hiding in the middle of it. The body color is light and slight frostiness of it made me classify it as a light opal, however it could be counted as a crystal also.

This opal comes form now closed mining area of Mintabie, in South Australia and I have had it for close to five years.
